Default RC sim?

Hi, I was wandering which is the best Rc simulater? Also preferably one with the Trex 450XL (ccpm).

Thanks!

Lots of peeps swear by G3, others use XTR, I'm cheap.......I use FMS and PP Joy (it's free).

Morning,

Although there are many sims available, I have had most my success using Reflex XTR. I have played with Aerofly as well as Realflight. Which ever you choose I am sure you will be happy. Remember that setting up the flying field physics is one of the key factors... When I have been out at the field and I experience whether that I couldnt handle for whatever reason, I play with the physics of the flying field in the sim until I get simular conditions and then fly the SIM and understand the weather better and so on... Alot of people just fly in sims for stick movements and orientation which is great, its what I began with, but as I progressed I wanted more realistic flight in the sims and thats where playing with the model as well as the fields physics comes in...

Anyway, I have said more that you asked for so I will retire on the topic... Good luck and I hope you choose the right sim for you.

Regards,
Solo.

Thanks I think I will go with Reflex. But does it come with the Trex 450XL(ccpm)? If not how can I get it?

Thanks!

Does the Hitec Laser 6 6-Channel FM/4 HS-325HB Servos have a sqaure hole thign or round?

Or does the Futuba 6EXH 6CH PCM transmitter have a square plug or round?

Thanks again!

Hey guys. Is the reflex that good? Doesn't come with a USB tx, and it costs just as much as the Real Flight G3. Is the XTR that great? I am using clearview and want to upgrade to either G3 or XTR.

Different people like different things. For me XTR is the one, and all the add-ons are free. Loads of aircraft to choose from (there is a good TRex SE).
Have a look at these two movies, it will give you a little idea what Reflex is like.

Movie one HERE

Movies two HERE - more heli's (including a TRex in this one)

Hiya,

It's called "My Sacrifice" by a band called Creed. The first movie is "Remedy" by Seether.

You won't be dissapointed with Reflex. It is very good. The other front runner on the block is Phoenix, which too is meant to be really good. The physics are meant to be the best on the market at the moment and the price is less than XTR. I've not used it so can only say what I have heard. (although I've seen some little video clips on the net).

If you go for one of the top 3, your money will have been well spent.
